Campus Turnaround Plan Guidance and Resources

House Bill (HB) 1842 is comprehensive legislation related to districts, charter schools, and campuses, specifically campus turnaround plans. After a campus has been identified as unacceptable for two consecutive years, the campus must develop and submit a turnaround plan to the agency explaining the campus’ systemic approach to producing significant and sustainable gains in achievement and a Met Standard rating within two years.

Campuses not meeting this standard in two years are subject to further sanctions, including campus closure or placement of a board of managers over the district. Texas Education Code §39A.103 in conjunction with the guidance and resources below provide further details and support for turnaround plan development.
